The Old Dun Cow, She's Done For Now

As with this pleasant water-colour of the original Dun Cow pub few dates or origins of the images used here are known as they were acquired from Dersingham residents over a number of years.
Comment from Dick Melton
When we moved into Lynn Road it was called Dun Cow Lane (or just Cow Lane from a postcard; Ed); it was a very busy road, as the by-pass was not built until 1990 so all the traffic used this road. Just after the Second World War it was the second busiest road in England in the summer months, the busiest road being London to Brighton. Most of the houses in Lynn Road were built around 1900 though a few were built later. The Dun Cow was pulled down in the Nineties, though there had been a public house on the site since around 1800. The Dun Cow was just one of the pubs that put up a team for the Ingoldisthorpe and District Cribbage League.
